Satoshi Kako is one of our family's favourite authors (he also wrote Crow Bakery, which is a must-read) as he has such a brilliant mind for making hard and important concepts fun.
The Power of the Earth 加古里子 地球的力量科学绘本 is a non-fiction set of 10, written in a way that a P2/P3 could self read, and a younger child would also understand. It's very well illustrated - would appeal to a child who enjoys numbers, maths, and geography. It's a really well-thought-out set, and we're glad MST recommended it to us to buy.
Very well illustrated book, explaining facts to my children in very simplified way :) it's a good extension/ elaboration to what I tried to explain to them!
